Acupressure: Can It Help Your Condition?

Thank you for your interest in our research.  Acu-form has the form for the research and Products file has a description of books and products that are needed for more intense work. Acupressure is at least 5,000 years old and achieves the fastest results when used for pain relief. In our recent study users had most of their pain relieved in just a few minutes. Sixty-five percent of people with headaches (387) were completely pain free within 3 minutes. Other pain studies show similar results.  The World Health Organization and others drew up a list of diseases or conditions they felt were responsive to acupuncture and acupressure. We are interested in anyone with conditions on this list but any type of symptom you have will help in our study. Our most recent book Acupressure Comprehensive Index has over 4000 symptoms summarized from 350 master teachers.. Any condition you are most interested in we can add in our miscellaneous section until we have more participants that will define a specific study.  (Our index has over 4,000 conditions)

What Can I Expect?

    The program of acupressure in this setting is focused on giving you the information and tools so you can do it yourself. There are books and a video available to view or purchase which best present the material. There is also a computer analysis which gives you the best points for your condition. Depending on level of research (bottom of this page) you select, you may be given three or four tools to stimulate the points. Sometimes when you use them your symptoms will leave almost immediately. Other times it will take several weeks to become symptom free. If after a month you still are having problems you should contact us. There are different points you may need to work with and we will individually develop a program for you.  About 3% of the people we worked with got no immediate relief.

    Our initial study is to determine if you can get results on your own and maintain those results over a period of one year using these materials. We ask you to fill out the research form for each condition that is bothering you after you finish this page. At specific intervals during the course of the year similar forms will be sent to your e-mail address. Some levels of this research do not require any deposit and are completely free.  
    We tried to evaluate these techniques by just giving the books and tools to people and asking them to return them when the study was done but found they just don't respond to our requests for returning the loaned materials or paying for keeping them. We are a small organization and cannot afford to give away this equipment. We would like to work with people in other research settings who can design more controlled studies.  On this first offering of this information it will be mostly survey research only. At a later time, when the bugs of getting the information and knowledge to those interested is worked out, we will do more controlled research.  We want to be sure we are measuring the benefits of acupressure and not how well we were able to share these methods. Anyone participating in this study will get copies of the different studies that come out of the Acu-Ki Institute and the results of their individual study. Current results are updated on a weekly basis here.

    Research seems to be one of the criteria for the medical community to consider new treatment methods. Although acupressure is not new, it has not met the current scientific criteria to be accepted by our western system of medicine. One goal at the Acu-Ki Institute is to initiate and support research that the medical community can use to determine if and when acupressure may work.
